PA Large Storage in Middletown, Pa., is adding three new self-storage buildings this year to its property at 2912 River Road. Founded three years ago by brothers Josh and Nick Matincheck, the business opened with a single building that catered to vehicle storage. The 25 units range in size from 16-by-25 to 16-by-50 feet.
“We have been looking to expand since the day we started,” Josh Matincheck told the source.
The facility expansion is being driven by community growth, including new housing and commercial developments, as well as an increase in the student population at nearby Penn State Harrisburg, according to the source. “They continue to improve the infrastructure of Middletown and Londonderry Township. We will see growth in the residential area,” Matincheck said.
The Matinchecks also operate Peiffer Plumbing and Heating Inc., which was started by their grandfather in 1950. In 1999, they launched Matincheck Associates Inc., a real estate holding company that focuses on single-family homes and rental properties. They became interested in the self-storage industry five years ago after several community members approached the family to discuss the lack of larger storage spaces in the area. Their father, Ed Matincheck, oversees the storage business, while the brothers operate Peiffer. Additional staff will be hired as the storage facility grows, the source reported.
